Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: GD Years - Odd Or Even?

I was going to go even, but, you make some good points . Also, I assume this is limited to what is out there , thus 69 over 68 because of the number of shows , and it is one of those years where they are very different in the beginning, and the end, same with 71 . 73 and 74 are a coin toss for me, but with 73 you get "Bird Song", and "HC Sunshine" .I would miss 76, but in 77 they pretty much what they didi in 78, but better, and the early 79 shows would give you taste of the late 78 band . 85, 89, and 91 are better bets, I think than their surrounding years . And though you get sort of screwed by 75 ( but those shows a GOOD shows ), you lose the short and weak 86, and 95 is mercifully short ( and you get that late Jerry "Visions of Johanna" , one of the best things in the last few years, with "Days Between").
Thanks Crazy Otto for making us think about the Band's history in a fun way !
